Huge food event going on this weekend (sorry I meant to post about it earlier but somehow never got to it). There is a calendar in English here. Here is some more about the event, specifically about what will be going on at the Stazione Leopolda (there are also events all over the city):

From 13 to 15 March 2010, at the Stazione Leopolda in Florence, Pitti Immagine presents the fifth edition of Taste. In viaggio con le diversità del gusto, the fair dedicated to excellence in Italian food – featuring about 200 specialist and niche companies – as well as the biological diversities of foods in the global age.
